Brand to Watch: Nakimuli
There is nothing more likely to grab my attention than a gorgeous red dress.. this one is made of neoprene, which is what's making the skirt hang so beautifully, really showing off that amazing asymmetrical hem.
Of course I had to find out who made it and if it was available, and my search yielded the very pleasant result.
Its a gorgeous brand called Nakimuli. They're based in the US but they do ship internationally (hooray!) Their sizing goes up to a 3X which they describe as a US 22-24. All the clothes are modled by both straight size and plus size models which is a lovely touch. The styke of the red dress is called the "Mambo" dress, and it certainly looks like it'd inspire the wearer to dance, don't you think?
I also liked this wrap jacket:
The "Mambo" style also comes in a skirt as well, in some lovely prints.
And this is an adjustable swimsuit that can be worn all sorts of ways:
Instead of "Fashion Forward" - where being "trendy" or "on trend" or "ahead of the next trend" is most important - be "Fashion Adjacent". You're aware of current trends, but you know that this season's trends are an optional dress up party, to be indulged in or ignored as your personal style dictates.
If you are "Fashion Adjacent", you:
Forget "trendy" and wear things you love whether they are "fashionable" or not.
Forget size tags and wear clothes that fit you beautifully.
Forget Labels and find gems everywhere, from op shops to designer stores.
Forget "flattering" and wear things that make your heart sing.
Recognise and celebrate your body and realise that your body is perfect, just as it is. Have fun dressing it up and painting it!
Whatever you wear - you Make it YOURS.
